HISTORY OF THE SENIOR CLASS
The History of the (lass of '38 differs in three res/teds
from the preceding histories: first, our class began to be
really active in the Freshman rather than the Sophomore
year; second, everything undertaken by the CJass of '38 has
been a huge success both socially and financially; and third,
there has been no class in the past, there is no class in the
present, and there will be no class in the future, that can
compare with the CJass of '3#.
During September in the year L934, we of the Class of '38, a group of disunited
hul high-spirited school children, entered our freshman year of high sehool in
possession of the harmful knowledge that we were to rule the Junior High Sehool
during that year. Our first step was to unite the individual rooms for the purpose
of working toward a common goal. This u as effected by the selection of a class
pin which was to be worn by the members of the class and which gave us a feeling
of unity. The class progressed satisfactoril) until we felt that the time was ripe
for publishing a year book. It was at this time that the Class of '38 met its first
obstacle, for an epidemic of scarlet fever prohibited issuing the book. This, however,
failed to break our spirit, and on the rain) evening of February 14th, we held a
Valentine party which was the first, and incidental^ the last of its nature to be held
in the Junior High. Our principal during this hectic Freshman year was Mr. Lynch.
A fine morning in October. 1935, found us trudging in the general direction of
the Senior High. Don't you remember that school was delayed three weeks in open-
ing because of an infantile paralysis epidemic? Realizing our inferiority in the
eyes of the omniscient and venerable Seniors, we swaggered into the institution with
a chip on our shoulder. The friendliness and geniality of the Seniors, however, had
a disarming effect, and the end of the day found us confiding in the same Senior's
upon whom we had looked with distrust but a few hours previous. Mr. Archibald
and the rest of the faculty did all within their power to insure our confidence in the
administration of the school: however, it was not until the election of our class
officers that we reallv settled down. Joe Palleiko was elected President: Lucille
Fenton, Vice-President: Margaret Costello. Secretarv : Carroll Woods and Marie
Gray, Treasurers: and Francis Quann was elected to the A. A. Council.
The Sophomore Party was an event that will always remain in the minds of
those who attended. Major Adam Scott Bowes conducted his amateur hour coin-
mendably, for the performance was interrupted only once by the sound of the gong.
This occurred when Teddy Mulvehill made a sorrowful attempt to croon "Love in
Bloom. The Sophomore Party was not solely a social success, for we demon-
strated our financial ability by aiding the coffers of our treasury with the returns
of the Party.
The next event of any importance was the Sophomore Play, "White Christmas",
which was coached by Miss Gray. The characters included Jimmy Donovan, Uuno
Hallman, Emily Caswell, Wayne Foster, and others. This play was significant in
that it gave evidence of the superior talent to be exhibited when we were to give our
Senior Play, two years hence.
When we returned to school the following autumn, we found that the Juniors
to whom we had paid little attention were the lords and masters of the school.
This was the moment for diplomacy, and in a short time we had the Seniors eating
(»ut of our hands. In anticipation of a lug year, we elected Carroll Woods, Presi-
dent: Lucille Fenton. Vice-President: Frances Richall, Secretary; Gladys Nord-
strom and Gertrude Mason, Treasurers: and Francis Quann, A. A. Council. During
this memorable >ear on the Hill, we walked awa\ with Scholastic honors, showing
the Seniors that they had something with which to contend. The most important
event of our social calendar, however, was ihe Junior Prom. It was during this
affair that we of the Class of '38 appeared in the limelight in which we were destined
to remain for the rest of our career on the Hill. It is unnecessary to state that the
Prom was both a social and financial success because everything that the class of
'38 undertook from this point on was considered a success even before it was held.
In September, 1937, the Class of "38 came into its own at the Norwood Senior
High. This was the year in which we really made our mark among all those classes
that had gone before. We started the year by holding the annual election: however,
the difference of opinions became so intense that the Senior Class divided into two
factions. There was a serious issue at stake, for the question of whether we were
to have a student congress was to be voted upon by the entire school. The result
of the election was that Carroll Woods was elected President: Elmer Pike. Vice-
President: Martha Taylor, Secretary; Mildred Lindbloom and Joseph Bonica. Treas-
urers; Francis Quann, A. A. Council.
The next important event was the Football Dance which was sponsored by the
Senior Class. The Gymnasium was a riot of color when the decorations were
finished by the committee, and the huge attendance made their work worthwhile.
The music was furnished by Harold Kiley. and the main attraction was the presenta-
tion of the football coaches, the captains, and the cheer leaders of both Norwood
and Dedham. The coaches of both schools gave their opinions as to the outcome of
the game, followed by Co-captains Quann and Bader of Norwood. Chisholm and
Avery of Dedham. Those in attendance at the dance were asked to cheer both schools
led first by the Dedham cheerleaders, and then by those of Norwood. The dance was
a tremendous success, both socially and financially, and was said to be the most
gala dance ever held at the High School.
It seemed as though our Christmas vacation had just ended when we were
informed that the Senior Play was about to be produced. The play chosen was
"Life Begins At Sixteen," which seemed very appropriate for the purpose, for no
doubt Miss Gray had a certain class in mind when she chose this play. The charac-
ters in the play were Russell Spachman, Uuno Hallman. Mary Breen. Philip Pen-
dergast, Irene Palonen, Barbara Rathburn. Helen Pendergast. Edward Paolucci,
Alma Spearwater, Marion Henry, Toivo Suomi, Margaret Costello. Marjorie Bemis.
Raymond O'Brien and Rita Tarpey. The play was most successful, evidenced by
the fact that the Class of '38 realized financially more than twice as much as any
other class in the history of the school.
In the meantime, we had decided to wear blue caps and gowns for graduation.
(Tommy Conroy and Ray O'Brien ought to know. I
By this time the yearbook of the Class of '38 was progressing rapidly under
ihe careful eye of the Editor-in-Chief. Jinum Donovan. Inlike main of the other
classes, we made sure of getting an early start, thanks to the suggestion of our
tireless adviser. Mr. Fairbanks, to whom we owe a debt of gratitude. Even with this
advantage, the work seemed to pile up on those connected with the best vearbook
that has ever been seen at the High School.
As this goes to press, the Senior Prom, an event of the future, is destined to be-
another great success even though the treasury of the Class of '38 has no urgent
need of the profit.
Thus we terminate twelve of the best years of our life, years that we have
happily spent in delving for knowledge in the companionship of many of our best
friends. We are happy, however, for we have made our mark among the classes of
Norwood High. We will not consider this an ending, but we will think of it as
the starting point from which students of the class of '38 shall begin their careers.
And we shall always remember the friends that we have made and the unforgettable
experiences that we have had under the careful but friendly supervision of our
teachers in the school that has meant so much to our predecessors, and will mean so
much to us, the Class of '38.

HISTORY OF THE JUNIOR CLASS
PLAY: The Voice of '39 (in 2 Acts)
SETTING: Norwood Hich School
CHARACTERS: Members of Class of 1939
TIME: 1936 - 1938
The curtain rose in September, 1936 upon the triumphal entrance of the Class
of '39 into the High School and thence into school activities. The leading characters
of our first act were Thomas Folan, Margaret Kelley, Betty Shackley, David Butters,
Jennie Patinsky and Alice O'Brien. The supporting cast gave sterling performances
at the Sophomore Play and Sophomore Party. The brilliant performances of our
athletes have been duly applauded.
The twin social events in Act II, the Junior Party and Prom proved equally
successful. At the Prom the principals of this act — Renaldo Fatch, Matthew Folan,
Martin Lydon, Jerome Daunt, Jennie Patinsky and Alice O'Brien led the Grand

Now there comes a pause — Intermission. Soon the curtain will rise for the
last time upon the final, most significant act. The stage is set, everything in readi-
ness. We know that more action, drama, suspense and thrills lie behind that curtain.
Still we must wait.

The clouds sail gently on their way
Upon a sea of azure blue.
Their forms are odd —
Gnomes dancing now,
Then, a bull with cushioned horn
Upon which rides a warrior bold.
With robes a-flying in the wind —
The gnomes sail on,
The bull sails too,
And with him comes the warrior bold.
No thought is given to mortals cold
All in a brawling world their own,
Blind to the dancing gnome and bull.
If mortals could but stop to see
The gentle, free and happy way
The gnome and warrior live their lives
They too, might spend an hour short
In gentle, free and happy way;
And benefit by what they see
When lying on a patch of green,
A looking at a warrior bold, upon a cushioned horn.

SOPHOMORE CLASS HISTORY
By Wednesday, September 8, 1937, everything had been made ready at Norwood
High School for the bewildered crowd of 250 members of the Class of 1940. For
the majority of the confused and perplexed group, it was their first official session
at the "School on the Hill". The stairways and corridor traffic were difficult to
understand and many strove desperately to find their right classroom. This caused
worry for a short while. But that was September! How we have advanced, after
becoming acquainted with the School! From a band of helpless objects of pity and
scorn of the two upper classes, we have progressed to a well organized group, with
numerous notable achievements accomplished in the year.
Debating: — Coached by Mr. Butler, we are represented by eight members on the
debating team who have justified the class by notable performances.
Music: — Here we appear to have a distinct interest and as about one half the orches-
tra is composed of Sophomores, we must also have undisputed talent.
Athletics: — We are certainly athletically inclined, as the class has been duly repre-
sented in different sporting events. We had 25 boys on the football squad; in
basketball 7 more were selected; in indoor track we had 9 boys competing.
Dramatics: — The histrionic ability of the sophomore actors was quite evident in
their presentation of the Christmas Play. Very ably coached by Miss Gray, the
sophomore stars presented a play well worth high school rating. This production
revealed hidden talent in several instances.
Social: — Our main social function of the year was the Sophomore Party, which was
held on the evening of October 28. Many of our class regard it as the high light
of the social season. Much of the success of the affair should be accredited to Miss
Coughlin, our Class Adviser, who was very active in trying to have all present have
an enjoyable evening.

To find a nook where thoughts can stray,
To spare an hour or two,
To dream of travel, music and art
Is what I like to do.
I sail upon the seven seas
In quiet and repose,
And learn the tongues and ways of man,
And don their native clothes.
I write a book, and tell the tales
Of all that I have done,
I paint in oils a pastoral scene
Of lakes, of hills, of sun.
I compose a tune, I write a verse,
To make a song of spring,
Of grass, of trees, of flowers, of bees,
Of clouds, of birds on wing.
These dreams then fade, the glamour gone,
And my thoughts then gladly roam
To a truer, happier, more peaceful place,
Back — to my own home.

The Quest Club was originally organized by the Class of 1925.
Its purpose is to further the education of its members in other
ways than scholastic. Most every student of Norwood High is a
member, the dues being some voluntary participation in fulfilling
the club's purpose. Its chief activity is to complete the Christmas
joy of the less fortunate children of Norwood.
At these parties each child is escorted by a senior member of
the club. After playing games and singing carols Santa Claus
comes down the chimney and presents each child with a pair of
mittens, a game, toy, apples and pop corn. After refreshments
they are taken home by the questers.
Proceeds from a movie and contributions from town citizens,
Norwood High School graduates and students, made last year's
Christmas party to many deserving children, a complete success.
President: GERTRUDE MASON
Director: MISS GRAY
The year 1937-38 has heen a most successful one for the tlies-
pians. With forceful leadership, excellent supervision and an in-
creased membership, the club planned a novel and interesting pro-
gram. This included a series of gay parties which conveniently
came during the Christmas season, on Valentine's Day and on
Most noteworthy play was "Who Gets the Car Tonight." This
was directed and produced by the members. The proceeds were
used to purchase a set of new screens which will aid next year's
members in presenting bigger and better productions.
The rendezvous of the club is room 117. The day is Friday.
A large group always attends, for the Dramatic Club has grown in
popularity with the students here on the hill. In fact, anyone
wishing to make a sound investment in extra curricular activities
needs only to try out the Dramatic Club.
Director: MR. HAYDEN
Captain: BERNARD BERGMAN
The Traffic Squad was organized in 1933 by Mr. Lincoln D.
Lynch, present Superintendent of Schools in Norwood. It is now
under the supervision of Mr. Hayden, submaster of the High School.
The purpose of this organization is to maintain order among
the students. To accomplish this, officers are stationed, between
classes, at various posts throughout the corridors and locker-rooms.
Any violator of the traffic laws is duly summoned to appear at
the student court, where a sentence is handed down by three judges,
Joseph Palleiko, Francis MacCauley and Donald Alden.
Officers are carefully chosen for their good scholastic record,
character and citizenship. LJnless the standard of a member re-
mains high, he is asked to resign.
The captain of the group is Bernard Bergman and his able
lieutenants are Beatrice Coleman, Irene Costello, John Breen, Phil-
lip Ekholm and Harvey Nutter.
Precide.-it: JAMES DCNOVAN
Director: MR. JAMES BUTLER
The Debating Club, under the leadership of Mr. James Butler,
luid a large membership this year. Most of the members were new-
comers from all classes who showed good possibilities. Many
debates were arranged so that experience and practice for delivery
could be acquired. Taking this into consideration, the teams this
year did very well in their debates with Portland and South Port-
land, Maine; Somerville, Girls High, M. I. T. Freshmen, Hingham,
Weymouth, Newton, New Bedford and Quincy.
Members of the Debating Club actively assisted this town in
its participation in Gov. Hurley's safety drive. They spoke before
various organizations and all the schools of Norwood.
The club was made up of the following:
President — James Donovan.
Publicity — Edward Paolucci.
Teams — Seniors: Ingrid Eklof, Irene Palonen, Salme Krusela,
Hilda Frank, Helen Smith, Phil Pendergast.
Juniors: James Shyne, Renaldo Fatch.
Sophomores: Leona Baleman, Phoebe Ann Hayes, Shirley
Badger, Genevieve Boyd, Louis Maguire, Arthur Allen, Jean Rob-
ertson and Ann Horton.
President, IRVING BERKLAND
Director, CLIFFORD WHEELER
The Norwood High School Rifle Cluh, under the capable guid-
ance of Mr. Wheeler, started its season off well by invading Beverly
to defeat the Beverly Rifle Club, composed entirely of girls. In the
return match they were defeated. This was the first shoulder to
shoulder match that was fired against a group of girls in the history
of the Rifle Club.
The High School Rifle Club does all of its firing in the attic of
the Municipal Building. This range was secured through the gen-
erosity and good graces of Mr. Kendrick, the town manager, and
the Rifle Club is highly indebted to him.
Meetings are held on Thursday evenings for the older members
of the club, while Friday evening is reserved for the new members.
The existence of the Rifle Club has been made possible simply
and solely through the untiring efforts and sacrifices of Mr. Wheeler.
He devotes his time generously to the boys who are interested and
willing to learn, and he may be found during any Thursday or
Friday evening giving his time and attention to the boys, when he
could be spending his time elsewhere to greater personal advantage.
On the range he instills in the boys a greater sense of patience,
concentration, self-control and co-ordination of eye and muscle. All
of the success that the Rifle Club has enjoyed can be traced to the
indefatigable Coach Wheeler, and the members of the Rifle Club
of the Class of "38" as well as the younger members, offer their
undying gratitude and friendship to him with whom we have been
so closely associated during the past three years.
The officers of the Rifle Club are as follows: Irving Berkland,
President; Theodore Hyora, Vice-President; Jack Berkland, Secre-
tary; Gus Lanier, Treasurer; John Dower, Range Officer.
Director: PROFESSOR JOHN V. DETHIER
When music was first introduced in ihe Norwood Schools, the
students of the Junior and Senior High Schools were combined to
form one orchestra of 18 pupils.
As the interest in music grew and more pupils desired to join
the orchestra, two separate groups were formed. One was for
Junior High students and the other for the Senior High School,
consisting of 50 each.
For a number of years rehearsals were held after school every
Monday and Tuesday. Later the sixth period of the same two
days was devoted to music work, and in September, 1937, it was
decided that orchestra classes should be held four periods a week
for those who wished it.
The orchestra plays at school assemblies, Senior Play and
graduation. Often outside organizations ask the group to entertain
al special gatherings.
Every year certain members of the orchestra are chosen to
represent our school at the New England Music Festival, which is
held in different cities of New England.

Music Major Classes I and II are divided into three sections:
harmony, music appreciation and voice training. Harmony I
teaches the fundamentals of harmonizing and arranging chords
correctly. The second year offers a course more advanced along
this same principle and students write their own compositions.
The aim of the Music Appreciation course is to develop a love
for good music and to learn the history of standard and recognized
composers and compositions. A study is made of the development
of music from the ancient period through the classical, romantic,
modern, and contemporary periods.
The Voice Training classes are relatively large in comparison
to the other divisions of the course. Through Professor Dethier's
masterful selection and direction of the compositions studied, the
girls have learned to sing with more profound expression. As in
previous years, the voice group rendered its services at many occa-
sions. They entertained at the annual Military Ball and at P. T. A.
meetings. Also for Junior and Senior High assemblies.
Professor Dethier's music classes receive a vast knowledge of
worldly facts as well as music.
The mcmhership of this course is growing with the prospect
of being one of the best liked courses at Norwood High.
Teacher: MR. FAIRBANKS
Early in the year at a closs meeting, seniors were told of the
contest that was being conducted between the home rooms.
The purpose of the drive was to obtain advertisements for the
year book and each senior was requested to bring in one ad.
A chart was placed on tbe bulletin board and each day the
progress of every home room was recorded. Room 220 was the
leader continually, with the Library running a close second. At
the end of the time allotted, however, Room 220 was pronounced
winner with a score of 125 per cent.
The members of the winning home room who deserve special
mention for the great number of ads they suceeded in obtaining are
Kathleen Robertson, Natalie Smith and Russell Spachman.
Co-Captains: FRANCIS QUANN, NAIMI BADER
BENNETT MURRAY Assistant Coach: JOHN SULLIVAN
Coach "Benny" Murray's call for football candidates was
answered by a very green squad.
By the first game, the boys were fairly well drilled and tied
Norwood then proceeded to get better with each game, tying
Framingham and Abington and defeating Needham, North Quincy,
Milford, Canton, and Natick.
Norwood and Dedham approached their annual game unde-
feated. Due to injuries and playing conditions Norwood met with
its first and only defeat.
Co-Captains "Franny" Quann and Naimi Bader, as well as
James O'Donnell, Harold Mattson, "Gus" Wozniak, John Wall,
John Lanzoni, "Tony" Stanovich, John Kelly, Terry Barrett,
"Chuck" Elias, Ray O'Brien and John Foley played their last game
for Norwood High, in this game.
It is interesting to note that both Framingham and Abington,
who tied for first place in Class "C" Eastern Massachusetts Inter-
scholastic Athletic Association, were both tied by Norwood.
Another intereting fact is that Natick tied Dedham, Norwood
beat Natick and Dedham beat Norwood.
We wish good luck to Coach Murray and next year's Co-Cap-
tains Donavan and Ruscetti.
Captain: OVIA SULONEN
CoDch: H. BENNETT MURRAY
Coach Murray's basketball team closed a very successful sea-
son, winning 7 games and losing 4.
Norwood opened the season by defeating a powerful Natick
team, 38-30. Later in the season, Norwood went to Natick and
again won, 31-26.
Norwood won both games from Framingham, 32-30 and 33-31.
Captain Ovia Sulonens sharp shooting was the outstanding feature
of these games.
Norwood lost to Needham 29-25 but in the return game, Nor-
wood crushed Needham 35-25.
Norwood lost to a powerful Watertown team 23-18.
In the most exciting game of the season the Norwood Mer-
chants, composed of former high school stars, nosed out their
younger opponents 33-31. The lead changed hands seven times
with Thayer of the Merchants sinking the winning basket in the
closing seconds of play. Naimi Bader starred for the High School
with 12 points.
Norwood lost two heartbreaking games to Walpole 23-20 and
Norwood came from behind to crush Dedham 32-27 by un-
leashing a blistering attack in the fourth period. Sulonen again
was the high scorer. In the return game Norwood walked over
Dedham 37-18. Johnson lead the Norwood attack with 10 points.
Ekholm and Boyden were outstanding on defense.
The starting line-up of Bader, Sulonen, Johnson, Boyden and
Ekholm will graduate but we think that Captain Steve Coakley's
next year's team will be a winning one.
Captain: HARVEY NUTTER
Coach: CLIFFORD WHEELER
At the beginning of the season what looked like a very strong
indoor track team was hard hit by sickness forcing many star per-
iormers to the sidelines, including Captain Harvey Nutter. Poor
practice facilities also handicapped the team.
The track team paid tribute to Adam Scott, who was taken
seriously ill after running a splendid race in the Northeastern
meet, by awarding him a sweater.
In dual competition, Norwood defeated Boston College High
School and lost to Dedham High.
In the Eastern Seaboard Relay Carnival the one-lap team of
Lanzoni, S. Kelley, J. Kelly and Dobson won medals. The twodap
team of Quann, Butters, Alden and Hyora were barely beaten.
"Eranny" Quann was the most consistent performer through-
out the season. He won third place in the 45 yard hurdle race in
the State meet.
In a track novelty Norwood and Dedham combined teams to
defeat a combined Chelsea and Milton team 46-26.
Letter men who are graduating are Harvey Nutter, Francis
Quann, John Lanzoni, Donald Alden, Elmer Rintale, James O'Don-
nell, William Coughlin, John Kelly, Heimo Hyora and Theodore
Captain: HARVEY NUTTER
Coach: CLIFFORD WHEELER
As this issue went to press the outdoor track team hadn't had
any track meets, but we feel that Coach Wheeler will again turn
out a very good team.
With such star runners as Quann, Nutter, Coughlin, Hyora
and Jiampietro back, we are almost sure that the team will be
undefeated in dual competition and may probably better last year's
record of fourth place in the State Class "B" meet.
The relay team should be excellent with such a field as Captain
Nutter, Lanzoni, Quann, Coughlin, Alden and Hyora to pick from.
Among the schools Norwood will meet in dual meets are
Boston Trade, Boston College High School, Watertown, Waltham,
Quincy, Framingham and Dedham.
It is hoped that the outdoor team will not be so severely handi-
capped by lack of practice facilities and sickness as was the indoor
Captain: JAMES DONOVAN
Coach: STANLEY FISHER
A large squad responded to Coach Fisher's first call for prac-
tice. As there are two veterans back and there is a promising crop
of newcomers everything points to a very successful season.
The veterans are Captain James Donovan and Joseph Murphy.
From the ranks of the newcomers, the most outstanding are Paul
Heffernan and Edward Pendergast.
The boys have been practicing daily and judging from the way
practice has been going the team is headed for a very good season.
The schedule to date is as follows:
Brockton at Norwood Norwood at Walpole
Needham at Norwood Norwood at Wrentham
Wrentham at Norwood Norwood at Needham
Norwood at Brockton North Quincy at Norwood
Walpole at Norwood
Captain: HELEN PENDERGAST
Coach: MISS JOHNGREN
The 1938 tennis squad which lined up in the gym for indoor
practice in April certainly gave the coach renewed courage in plan-
ning this year's schedule. The sophomore element looked excep-
tionally hopeful and promised to add new strength to the already
powerful juniors and seniors.
Outdoor practice began with a mad rush. The new courts were
broken in almost over night, and tennis for the moment was ceded
number one sport here on the hill.
After the mad rush had subsided and the crowds had retired to
the sidelines, the following were picked:
Captain Helen Pendergast, Leona Bateman, Margaret Connolly.
Margaret Daunt, Lucille Fenton, Victoria Jacome, Elizabeth Mc-
Call, Jane Pendergast, Jane Costello, Geraldine Slavin, Mary
Riemer and Albina Thompson.
Captain: JOHN FOLEY
Coach: EVERETT LEARNARD
Coach Learnard is very much impressed with the improvement
his boys have shown in practice. As there are five veterans return-
ing from last year's squad, the team looks forward to a very suc-
cessful season. The veterans are John Williamson, John Foley,
Francis Quann, Vincent Costello and Dick Pudsey. In practice
these boys have shown signs of being an outstanding team.
In a practice match the High School defeated the Alumni.
John Williamson and Walter Gruesheski played outstanding games
for the High School. Gruesheski is a sophomore and we predict
that in the next two years he will develop into one of the best play-
ers Norwood has had.
We feel certain that John Williamson, who played excellent
golf for the past two years, will continue his fine play throughout
Williamson, Foley and Quann will graduate this June, but
Coach Learnard will have a good nucleus left to work with next
Captain: STEPHANIE AUKSTOLIS
Coach: MISS KILEY
An important item on the girls' winter sport calendar was
basketball. All the teams had a successful season, but the laurels
go to the varsity team, which came out victorious in every game.
Captain Stephanie Aukstolis and Lucile Fenton put up an
excellent fight to the keen competition offered in each game.
The first team consisted of: Stephanie Aukstolis, Lucile Fen-
ton, Stella Jusikiewicz, Adele Mainones, Helen Pazniokas, Julia
Babel, and Priscilla Holman.
The varsity scores were:
Coach: H. BENNETT MURRAY
Though lacking an experienced battery, Coach Murray feels
that his baseball team, winners of the Bay State League Baseball
Championship for the past two seasons, will give a very good
account of themselves this year.
With such boys as Coakley, Surrette, Donavan, Stanovich,
Bader, Conroy, Breen, and Boyden, we think that Norwood will be
well represented on the diamond.
There will be two veterans in the outfield, but the newcomers
will make it hard for them to hold their positions. Last year's
graduation took a heavy toll of the infield material, but present
prospects encourage Coach Murray to feel that he will have a well
drilled infield by the opening game.
The schedule: I two games with each team)
Norwood vs. Walpole Norwood vs. Wellesley
Norwood vs. Framingham Norwood vs. Natick
Norwood vs. Milford Norwood vs. Dedham

Director: MISS GRAY
Theatre-goers on the night of February 17, at the Junior High
School, witnessed the great stage production "Life Begins At Six-
teen". This three act comedy hit, with an all star senior cast,
revealed hitherto hidden talent which might have gone unnoticed
if it were not for the "get behind it and put it across" motto of
We award a gold medal to every member of the cast for a
line performance. An academy trophy to Miss Gray for her ex-
cellent direction of the "raw material" that presented itself at the
first rehearsal, and a lollypop to Marjorie "Snookie" Bemis.
First mention to the prompter for those words that might have
been needed. Second mention to the stage committee, electricians
i-.nd the orchestra. Honorable mention to the ticket, advertising
and checking committees, and a big hand for the Seniors.
The cheers of the crowd at the afternoon track meet were still ringing in the
ears of Jimmy Jones. He had set a new record in broad jumping and had aided in
winning a decisive victory for his school in the relay. He had certainly been a
hero. Whistling, and reviewing in his mind the afternoon's proceedings, he pre-
pared himself for the dance celebrating the event. Abruptly his whistling stopped
as he adjusted the orange tie he was going to wear. He stared at his image in the
mirror and gulped. He suddenly came to the realization that tonight was the
occasion at which he was going to invite Luella to attend, with him, the coming
Senior Promenade. Oh shucks, thought he, I'll find something to say when I
So that evening the hero confidently entered the dance hall, nodding and smiling
a "hello" to his classmates. The orchestra was playing a favorite waltz tune. Rather
anxiously, he cast his eyes around the dance floor. What was that feeling at the
pit of his stomach! Was his heart pounding just a little too hard! There she was!
Shining in all her beauty! He took three steps forward but where was his courage
that had never failed him.
"Might as well get it over with," mused he; "I'll just go up to her and ask
her point blank."
With a great deal of determination, he strode up to Luella and invited her to
dance. He asked her numerous questions about the weather and ordinary subjects,
putting off the invitation until another dance.
Dance after dance followed, the evening gradually wearing itself away. Still
the question was not propounded. The hero had now worked himself up to nervous
exhaustion. His pulse was beating madly. His throat was dry. His hands were
clammy and shaking. His thoughts were confused.
Finally, with a desperate effort, perspiration standing on his forehead, he drew
her aside and blustered in broken sentences about the prom.
A smile formed on her face as she said, "Oh, I've had an invitation."
'Well, of all the . . . ", he expostulated.
'But I refused," she interrupted.
She nodded with a smile.
Triumphantly, he led her back to the dance floor and they danced happily to
the tunes of "Home Sweet Home".
"Well," he mused, "that was no trouble at all — er — not much."
IRENE PALONEN '38.
The day has come. We leave this school
With few, if any, fears.
We leave in pride. We've struggled hard
For twelve or thirteen years.
The town may well be proud of us!
We're destined to succeed!
They taught us French and Latin here,
And we know how to read.
But though I'm happy, there's one thing
Detracts from my enjoyment
It's this: tomorrow I must walk
The streets to seek employment.

LAST WILL AND TESTAMENT
We, the Class of 1938, of the Norwood Senior High School, having with more
or less effort survived three rigorous years on the Hill with nerves shattered, and
hodies weakened, but with minds enough improved to placate a charitable and lenient
examining authority, knowing that we have about completed the cycle of existence
by law and custom allotted to us, regretfully realizing that we are about to depart
from this indolent existence into an unknown and uncharted future for the purpose
of distributing the vast property which we have accumulated, do hereby make,
ordain, establish, publish, and declare this to be our last will, hereby revoking any
and all other testamentary dispositions heretofore made by us.
After we have with much difficulty made payment of all our just debts, and
the expenses, incident and necessary to our departure, we give, devise and bequeath
I. To Mr. Lynch and members of the School Committee we leave our heart-
felt thanks and appreciation.
II. To Miss Gow, Mr. Thompson, and Mr. Hayden we leave the class of 1939
(to take our place if they can, which we doubt very much.)
III. To Mr. Fairbanks, we leave an autographed copy of the "Crescent", to
remind him of the many headaches and sleepless nights that he
suffered in our behalf.
IV. Franny Quann's and Naimi Bader's success as Co-captains of the football
team we leave to Hacker Donovan and Zombi Ruscetti.

IX. Helen Pendergast's and Marge Costello's popularity with the Dedham boys
we leave to the undergraduates.
X. To Professor Dethier we leave a more co-operative bass section.
XL To Howard Horton's brother, Daniel, we leave their car, but not for the
same purpose Howie uses it.
XII. Mary Magnani's ability to talk with her eyes, we leave to her sister, Linda.
XIII. Irving Berkland's "drag" we leave to his brother, Jack.
XIV. Martha Taylor's collection of "A's" is bequeathed to Lois Butler, whom
we think a most worthy successor.
XV. We give Marion Henry's red bandanna to Frank Donovan. Use this for
a necktie — you wolf.
XVI. We leave Jack Donovan's "get up and go" spirit to Pauline Crouse.
XVII. We leave Joe Riley's shoes to Jack Crowley.
XVIII. We leave Elmer Pike's ability to swing around the dance floor to Thomas
Peter Buster Folan.

of Sloan's Liniment and our sympathy.
XX. Mildred Lindblom's dimples are bequeathed to Shirley Engel. Do you
sleep on collar-buttons too, Shirley?
XXI. Gus Wozniak's way with the women we leave to Malcolm Orent.
XXII. Priscilla Holman's class spirit we leave to any undergraduate who can
follow in her footsteps.
XXIII. Roy Hansen's managerial ability on the football team we leave to "Mustard"
XXIV. Naimi Bader's athletic ability we leave to his brother, "Nicky".
XXV. The friendship of Lucile Riemer and Clara Dalton we leave to any under-
class girls who are big enough to keep it.
XXVI. Walter Surrette's striking altitude to "Look me over girls, here I come"
we leave to Laurie Smith.
In conclusion we pray that no one herein mentioned will take offense at any re-
marks, but will receive them in the manner in which they were given and intended.
Given under this, our hand, on the seventh day of June, one thousand nine
hundred and thirty-eight.

ON BEING THE "BABY" OF THE FAMILY
I am one of those poor unfortunates whose life must be forever clouded over
by the fact that I am the "baby" of my family. May I assure you that this is a most
dreadful state in which to find oneself?
The first glimmer of this feeling came to me when I was about three years
old. At this time, anything and everything I desired must be given to me at once,
for I was the "baby" of the family and had to be catered to. A delightful feeling
of power came to me and I thoroughly enjoyed and made the most of these situa-
When I reached the knowing age of four, I refused to be thought of as an
infant any longer and demanded that my family stop treating me as the baby. Little
did I know that for the rest of my natural life I was doomed to live under this
Most children are somewhat awkward in their teens, and I was no exception.
I seemed to be possessed of long skinny legs ending in enormous feet; my hands
were large and ungainly, and altogether I must have presented a picture to fill the
soul with horror. Yet I was still the "baby" of the family.
Though I try to act dignified and ladylike, sometimes I am tempted to abandon
my dignified manners. Especially am I tempted when my mother meets some old
friend of hers and says: "Oh, how are you Mrs. So-and-So? Yes, this is my baby!"
MARY J. CURRAN, '38
Place: World Book Fair, Los Angeles, California.
Situation: Martha Taylor is autographing her latest book, "Memoirs of Foreign
Travel." Joseph Pai.leiko pushes his way through the throng to see his old
Joseph: Hello, Martha. This certainly is a coincidence. I never thought I should
see you again, now that you are famous.
Martha: Oh, I'm just here for a few days to autograph my hook. Come, tell me
about yourself and what brings you here.
Joseph : To begin with, by the blessing of "Lady Luck", I won the last sweep-
stakes. To prove that I am not intellectually hopeless, I decided to take in the
Book Fair on my trip around the world.
Martha: Congratulations! You must have news from some of our old Norwood
High School mates.
Joseph: Do you remember James O'Donnell? It was he, the owner of the largest
catering business in New England, who arranged a farewell banquet in my
honor at the Norwood Hotel. Many of our old friends were present: Theodore
Hyora, town manager; Philip Pender gast, town treasurer; Edward Doherty,
fire chief; John Breen, chief of police; Augustus Lanier, superintendent of
public schools; Pat Flaherty, district manager of the "Ecco" stores; Gora Cian-
carelli, Leone Carlson, Ingrid Eklof, Grace Magnuson, teachers at Norwood
High; Helen Bartulevich and Lena Purpura, well-known speed typists now
connected with the Aukslolis and Baker School for Girls. Of course, George
Wood and his wife, the former Edith Brierly were there to bid me adieu.
Martha: What a send off you had! Your reference to teachers reminds me thai
I ran across George Butler in Carthage. Now that he has succeeded our able
Mr. Hayden, he prefers to present first hand information to his Virgil class.
"Mac" Macaulay and John Kelley were acting as his able assistants, so they
said, but I really think they were looking for modern Didos.
Joseph: That wouldn't be surprising.
But to continue my story. Amid the shouts and cheers of my fellow citi-
zens, I boarded the train for New York. At the Hotel New Yorker I was greeted
by Bruno "Davis" Uzdawinis. the manager, who, in the course of our conver-
sation, told me confidentially that Adele Mainones is his private secretary.
At dinner that evening I recognized the orchestra to be that internationally
famous swing band "The Cavaliers," featuring David Hyyti, drummer, and
Elmer Rintala, accordionist.
At ten o'clock sharp the floor show started. John Wall, master of cere-
monies, sang Terry Barrett's new song hit, "Lazy Man's Paradise."
Martha: John Wall, a singer! Amazing things do happen for when I was in
Montecarlo, I found Richard Hollister idling away his time and money at
Were there any other stars whom I might know?
Joseph: Lucille Fenton starred in a tap number. Clara Dalton and Lucille Riemer
held their own in a dance routine from the latest Broadway hit. They are still
two of a kind.
Martha: Two of our classmates are here in Los Angeles now. After receiving the
King Philip's ballroom in Wrentham as a gift for their faithful attendance,
Mary Magnani and Albina Thompson aspired to bigger and better things, and
are now proprietors of a nationwide chain of Dance Rendezvous.
Joseph : I must see them before I go.
The one act in the show that sent me into gales of laughter was put on by
"Teddy" Mulvehill, "Beans" O'Brien, and Elmer Pike, now known as the three
After the floor show the spotlight was focused on certain socialites:
"Marty" Lydon, Broadway playboy; Thomas Flood, oil magnate; Rita Dona-
hue, tobacco heiress; Jean Martin, New York's most versatile debutante; Rocco
Molinari, motion picture star and idol of the fairer sex. Nevertheless, my eye
was constantly on two cigarette girls, Helen Pendergast and Peggy Daunt, who
appeared to be more popular than the socialites.
Martha: It seems good to hear of all these people. I don't suppose you saw my
old pal, "Ronnie" Riley.
Joseph : No, but I read in the papers that she was to make her singing debut in
"Town Hall" New York on the eighth of this month. I haven't heard since how
the critics liked her but I know she will make good for she always had a lovely
voice and the will to get ahead.
At Belmont Park Michael Triventi, leading money rider of last year, rode
the winner of the Belmont Futurity. Incidentally the horse belongs to Philip
Mike, owner of the largest racing stable in the East.
Martha: While witnessing the Grand National at Aintree, England, I saw Joe
Silvestri, veteran jockey. When only two jumps from the finish, his horse threw
him but Joe miraculously escaped serious injury.
Joseph: At Madison Square Garden, I saw "Gus" Wozniak retain his wrestling
title by defeating Harold Mattson in a no time limit match. Joe Riley was the
Martha: When I was in Rio de Janeiro, I heard a great deal about Wall Street's
outstanding financier, Naimi Bader. Charles Bartkewicz is president of the
Stock Exchange, and according to the Brazilians, those two boys know how to
pick their stock.
Joseph: At the N. B. C. studios I saw Regina Osipovich and Stella Juskiewicz
singing their own snappy arrangements of hill-billy songs. Dorothy Whedon
is there as an announcer. Richard Wenstrom and Channing Foss are employed
as radio mechanics, Mary Mills gives helpful hints on home cooking, and
Clifford McLatchey and Dennis Murphy, violinists in the Ford Symphony
Orchestra, occasionally broadcast from this station.
I wonder what has happened to "Sleepy" Donovan?
Martha: Oh, he is the greatest hairdresser in all Paris. After he became bald, he
was at such a loss as to what to do that he decided to take up his long loved art
as a business. With him are John Dower, chief manicurist; Thomas Conroy.
chief masseur; Anastasia McDonough, Alice Hartshorn, Margaret Sheehan,
Laura Cormier and Edna Rombola, beauticians.
Millie Lindblom, after winning several beauty contests, has opened an ex-
clusive dress shop on the Rue de la Paix. Marion MacKenzie, Betty Shroeder,
and A r line Masino are dress designers while Margaret Costello, Sylvia Glei-
chauf, Marie Gray, Helen Cleary and Mary E. Curran are models.
Joseph: Speaking of beauty, Irene Costello has gone a long way. It seems that
the Hollywood producers looked far and wide for an actress whose beauty
is more than skin deep. Irene, with her sweet disposition and lovable nature,,
was the answer to their problem.
Martha: Do you remember Harvey Nutter, Bill Coughlin and Adam Scott? They
are on this year's Olympic track team and are favored in their respective events.
Gladys Nordstrom is entered in the women's swimming event and Priscilla
Nelson is in the diving contests. Edward Paolucci represents the U. S. A. in the
150 pound boxing bouts. Helen Pazniokas has become an outstanding favorite
in the woman's 220 yard dash.
Joseph: Good luck to them. I read in last night's paper that Seelem Saarinen won
a $10,000 Silence Marathon in Chicago.
Martha: Silence is golden but not to Tony Stanavich, president of the Acme
Rubber Company of Buenos Aires, who has been demoted to vice-president-
his wife is president.
Joseph: Chester Ambruskevich was recently arrested in South Norwood and
charged with setting up a lottery. He was trapped by state troopers John Stupak
and William Rasimovich.
Martha: Have you heard about Roy Hansen? When I was in Natal, South
Africa, he was trying to manage the natives, and if it hadn't been for James
Ready, who was doing missionary work among them, they would have managed
In the Tanganyika district I met John Spierdowis selling hot dogs to the
Joseph: I guess they go for "Hot Dogs" in a big way out there.
Martha: They certainly do. He imports all his frankfurts from the New England
Market owned by Bennie Polovitch.
Joseph: Isn't it strange that our friends are scattered all over the globe?
I attended a baseball game in Chicago not long ago between the Chicago
White Sox and Boston Red Sox. The game developed into a bitter pitching duel
with Pitcher John D'Espinosa finally winning his own game in the tenth inning
by a smashing double that brought home his team-mate, Joe O'Loughlin.
D'Espinosa yielded three hits in ten innings while his rival, Tommy Wallace,
gave six. Walter Surrette played brilliantly at first base for the White Sox al-
though they lost.
Martha: That reminds me of a basketball game 1 viewed some time ago. Oiva
Sulonen, Philip Ekholm, David Boyden and Russell Johnson displayed fine team
work by fast passing and successful attempts for baskets.
Joseph: Talk about baseball. You'd have died laughing if you had seen the
donkey basketball game last winter between the business men of Norwood and
Dedham. Toivo Suomi was high scorer with seven baskets to his credit, while
his team-mates, Thomas O'Toole and John Ziergiebel had three apiece. Avard
Robblee seemed to be on the floor more than on his donkey.
Martha: That must have been a riot as was the time I visited the Bonica & Bailey
Circus in London. The audience was kept in a joyous mood by the actions
of the clowns, Jimmy Connolly, John Curran and David Curran. Priscilla
Holman held the crowd tense in her trapeze act with Robert Winslow. As a
special attraction, the show featured Marjorie Bemis, the only woman in the
world to be shot from a cannon and hurled 200 feet through the air and yet
live to tell about it. Alexander Blazis was the strong man of the show while
Lawrence Hayes was selling peanuts, but from what I could see he ate more
than he sold. Marion Henry, acting as barker at the freak sideshow, was yell-
ing, "Right this way: Tickets a dime! See the new freak, half man and half
wolf!" I fell for it as did all the other people. When I entered the tent, there
sat "Smush" Foley as big as life. Marion shrieked with laughter each time she
sold a ticket.
What's happened to Marion Gallagher?
Joseph: She has set up an information booth in Norwood. Helen Clancy, Kath-
leen Robertson, Margaret Ryan and Francis Hanley are working with her. They
know all the answers.
Martha: I was entertained in royal splendor in Afghanistan by Carroll Woods,
who is now dictator of that country. Donald Alden has just been appointed
chief photographer while Irving Berkland is the editor of Afghanistan's leading
newspaper. Leo Bazzy and Bernard Bergman are also in his service. It was
quite a reunion.
Joseph : John Williamson is now a commentator on foreign news and broadcasts
every Tuesday night. Not long ago he announced that an American had been
stirring up trouble in Venice. It proved to be Franny Quann, now a gondolier
who had stolen all the trade from the Venetian Boys because of his appeal to
the feminine sex.
Another romantic character is John Lanzoni, highest paid opera vocalist
on the air.
Martha: What ever became of those two movie fans, John O'Brien and Vincent
Joseph : They are no longer movie fans. They are both truant officers in Norwood.
Their own past experiences enable them to be most efficient in finding the boys
who try to skip school.
Martha: In Switzerland Barbara Nichols and Beatrice Coleman are well-known
for their exclusive girls' school. Martha Curran is head of the infirmary,
Helen Banks is the dean of girls and teaches Latin on the side. Irene Palonen
is a professor of American literature.
Also well-known in Switzerland is Nellie Smelstor, renowned Alpine
climber. Veronica Tareila often joins her in expeditions but she doesn't relish
mountain climbing as much as Julia Babel, Josephine Babel and Elinor Chubet
Joseph : Did you know thai Russell Spachman and lino Hallman have established
a little theatre group in Norwood? In their cast are Alma Spearwater, Mary
Breen, Margaret Keeler, Rita Tarpey and others prominent in the theatrical
world. They have appeared in the leading playhouses and are now showing
at the Ruth Oen and Francis O'Leary theatre in Philadelphia.
Martha: They surely have used their talent to good advantage as did Berger
Johnson and Robert Johnson, who are engineers in a road construction company.
Joseph: If I'm not mistaken their company is the one that has been chosen by
Governor George Elias of Massachusetts to build a new super highway from
Boston to New York. Quite a controversy arose over the awarding of the con-
tract. James Donovan, editor of the Boston Transcript, was one of the governor's
severest critics. He claimed that the contract should have been awarded to the
Joe Conroy and Fred Carlson Construction Company, which was reported
to be the lowest bidder.
Martha: Evidently there must have been something in back of all this, yet I doubt
if Governor Elias would be guilty of a dishonest act.
Joseph: Maybe he wouldn't but there are rumors that he accepted a "cut." Stasia
Smith, Julia Dundulis, Stasia Wilkes, Helen Wytones and Caroline Notarangelo,
members of the city council of Boston, are investigating his public life.
Martha: Surely there must be more of our class-mates in social life. Helen
Drummey and Josephine Sawkeiwich, organizers of a Spinster Club in Mel-
Joseph: There surely are. Broivnie Green is president of the Norwood Bachelors'
Union while Edwiga Bochanowicz is head of the Norwood Women's Club. Leo
Murphy and Robert Both well belong to the Bachelors' Association. Angelo
Benedelti, Margaret Byrne, Margaret McDonough, Mary McDonald and Mar-
jorie Koch are prominent members of the Women's Club.
Martha: Have you heard about Avard Johnson? He is now a shoe manufacturer
in Caracas, Venezuela. In one of his stores he employs Phyllis Wallis, Margaret
Campbell, Mary J. Curran and Margaret J. Costello as salesgirls.
Joseph: Francis Tohosky walked the last mile some time ago. He was married to
Helen Smith by the Reverend Frederick O'Dea.
Martha: Have you heard about Jimmy Murphy's happy accident? He dropped a
flat iron on his toe and injured the offending member to such an extent that he
was taken to the Norwood Hospital. Natalie Smith was immediately transferred
to his case.
Joseph: She is enough to make anyone welcome a long rest.
Last winter William Walker was injured at Mount Mansfield. He couldn't
decide whether to go to the left or the right of a tree while he was skiing.
Martha: That's too bad. Have you heard anything about Howard Horton?
Joseph: His knowledge of salesmanship acquired at Norwood High has served
him well. He is now Filene's best salesman. Since he entered this field, the
sales on men's clothes, especially spats, have increased twenty per cent.
Martha: Doesn't Salme Kuusela work there?
Joseph : Yes. Karin Korhonen, Barbara Pascoe and Millie DeCosta are clerking
there. Eugenia and Madeline Paolucci work in the credit department.
Martha: That reminds me of John O'M alley. He is a floor-walker in Liberty's
Joseph: Bertha Kalliel and Sarnera Eysie have recently opened a hat shop in
Montreal. Mary Sorjanen, Virginia Waselunas, Nellie Venshus and Petres
Georgeu are working for them.
Martha: Barbara Rathbun is very happy these days. In Hongkong I saw her
painting pictures of the beautiful harbor. She travels with her husband, the
captain of the "Queen Mary."
Then, too, in Peiping, I visited Margaret Lyons. She is running a home for
Chinese orphans. Mary Norton supervises the play-ground, Sally Deeb is chief
dietician, and Lillian King sings the poor little things to sleep.
In Shanghai I spied Connie Duffy riding in a jinrikisha drawn by Ray-
Joseph: Oh, is she still riding around?
Martha: Yes, and from the way she flipped dimes to all the Chinese kids, she
must have acquired quite a fortune.
Joseph: Have you read Heimo Hyora's book? His daring feats surely equal those
of Richard Halliburton.
Martha: Yes, I saw Heimo in Madrid, tripping the light fantastic with the Spanish
Joseph: Of all the amazing things! But I know of one to match that. Mary
Maroney, Anne Peckham, Mary Anne O'Brien and Margaret Keady, woman
butchers, have opened the largest meat market in Chicago.
Martha: Rose Smith, Dorothy Readel and Mary Frances O'Brien are vacationing
with their husbands in Bermuda.
Dorothy Deeb and Helen DiMarzio are co-managers of the largest bicycle
renting shop in Hamilton, Bermuda. Andrew Sundgren is their best customer.
Joseph: What has happened to Ernest Wiesman?
Martha: When I was in Honolulu, I was serenaded by a group of young men
who were playing guitars beneath my window. Thrilled by the native music, I
leaned from the window only to spy Ernest Weisman and Robert Breen caroling
with the bronze natives. They were learning the art so that they can attract the
attention of certain young ladies in Norwood when they return.
Joseph : I understand that Hilda Frank is a missionary.
Martha: She is doing a fine piece of work among the natives of Samoa.
Joseph : Joe Slattery is doing all right these days, too. He owns the controlling
stock of the Chrysler Corporation.
Martha: I think that just about completes our list of class-mates, doesn't it?
Joseph: No, siree! Surely, we mustn't forget to mention Gertrude Mason. Her
splendid leadership has done much to further the World Peace Movement.
Martha: My! What fun we've had discussing our schoolmates. What a grand
class we turned out to be!

Instructor: MR. FAIRBANKS
The Advertising Committee of the yearbook consists of a
group from the Senior Class. These boys and girls got behind the
advertising campaign and worked diligently for many weeks. It
took many long hours after school to reach the advertisers and to
ask them to help us in making "The Crescent" a success. This
group kept on working until they finally reached the goal for which
they were striving. Under the leadership of Mr. Fairbanks and
Edmund Mulvehill, Lucile Reimer, Clara Dalton, John Kelly, Mil-
dred Lindeblom, Carroll Woods, Francis MacCauley, Kathleen Rob-
ertson, Frances Hanley, Madline Palucci, Bernard Bergman, Eugene
Paolucci, Donald Alden, John Williamson, Francis Quann, Irene
Palonen and Helen Cleary started out in the early part of January
to accomplish work which they had agreed to do so willingly.
To the school on the hill, we wended our way,
Thrill'd and proud on that autumn morn.
A Sophomores life before us lay —
A High School career for us was born.
Then came our proms, our games and plays;
With them, hard work and exams galore!
All too swiftly sped the days,
fill the time came to leave that well-known door.
As we toil in the years ahead,
Menfries of High School will often return.
The days that held for us such dread
Will seem like a Haven for which we yearn.
Farewell, to those we hold in rnind-
To classmates, friends and teachers all.
The hearts of "thirty-eight" will find
A longing sadness in the fall.

"AN INCIDENT IN THE NIGHT"
A tall shadowy figure leaned against the stone of a darkened doorway. The
moonlight lent little light to the scene. An occasional carriage rattled past. The
stacatto sound of the horse's hoofs could be heard on the cobblestone street. The
watcher in the doorway listened with anticipation as each carriage approached. As
each passed along its way without stopping, the young man sighed, and patiently
resumed his vigil. After some time had elapsed, a carriage similar to the rest drew
near. As it reached the doorway it slowed and stopped. A person in the carriage
drew aside the curtain and spoke to the figure in the doorway. He stepped from
his hiding place, opened the carriage door and disappeared within.
The carriage resumed its journey. The man spoke. "Ah, my dear, you are
late. I thought you had perhaps forgotten your promise to me."
The other figure spoke. "I offer my sincerest apology for causing you any
discomfort; but I was detained by officials on my way to you. I grieve to say that
there was a delay before I could resume my journey."
The voice was that of a young woman. Had there been sufficient light, one
would have observed that she was very beautiful.
"Margarette! You did not disclose your identity or mission to the fools!"
"Oh, you doubt my sincerity — my promise to you? — No. They learned nothing
and were obliged to let me pass. But now, tell me. When will the ship sail that
takes you away from me and this land of unhappiness and injustice — where those
who write the truth are condemned; and forced to flee?"
The man answered. "The ship sails when I step aboard. With the tide and
winds with us, I will be well out to sea before sunrise."
The carriage drew up to a wharf. The rigging and sails of a ship that was
pulling against the mooring lines, could be seen indistinctly against the sky. The
water lapped against the timbers. The air was tangy with the salty sea smell.
The two figures alighted to the ground and clung together a moment. The
woman spoke sadly.
"Would that I could but go with you. The days will be lonely and endless, until
you send for me to come to you in America, — the land that will be our land."
They spoke in subdued voices a while longer. The man clasped his sweetheart
in his arms once more, looked a long moment into her beautiful eyes, left her, and
boarded the ship. Commands were called in the night air. The anchor chain
rattled and the ship drew slowly away from the wharf. It moved away in the night
and at last disappeared in the darkness. The girl stood alone on the wharf, watch-
ing and listening in the gloom. She smiled sadly and spoke the name of the man
who had gone.
At last she turned and entered the carriage. Down the cobblestone street the
little carriage rattled and the stacatto beats of the horse's hoofs rang out in the thin
night air. The water lapped against the timbers. The air was tangy with the
salty sea smell.

■ GRANDMA GOODHEART
Grandma Goodheart was loved by all the people of Mountain Village. When-
ever anyone was in trouble or was ill, it was she who went to them immediately. By
confiding in her, their worries were gone, for she always knew some solution to
their problems. By taking the medicines she prepared, their aches and pains dis-
She lived all by herself in a neat, cozy little cottage. The flowers around it
appreciated their mistress' loving care and redoubled their efforts to display the
best of blossoms. On her hearth a kettle boiled continuously to make a cup of tea
for anyone who came. Grandma loved nothing better than a chat with a neighbor.
One day she received a letter from her grandson. He had made a fortune in
the West and was coming back to visit the little old lady he loved so well. Upon
reading this news, Grandma started to make the preparations for the day of his
arrival. Everything must be perfect, she thought. How she enjoyed anticipating
At last he came. What a fine young man he was! For nearly a month he
stayed with her. All the time he watched her in her simple life. He smiled at her
home remedies, at her kind advice. He had not told her, but he planned to take
her with him to live in New York.
A day or so before he was going to leave, he proudly disclosed his secret to
Grandma. He vividly painted the broad avenues, the tall skyscrapers, the huge
stores, the luxurious apartments and hotels. He described the modern conveniences,
many of which she had never seen. She listened intently, her face filled with rap-
ture. Wait until she told the neighbors about her good fortune!
Once in New York, her grandson set out to show her the whole city. Gaily they
went, seeing everything from museums to night clubs. At first Grandma thought
she had never had such a good time in her life. She was enchanted by the gleaming
white kitchen in their spacious apartment. Everything was so efficient and orderly.
But Grandma couldn't go into the kitchen without displeasing the cook — and her
grandson. He said his grandmother shouldn't go near the kitchen. She didn't need
to now. Always, things were done for her. The situation went from bad to worse.
She felt herself growing dissatisfied and unhappy.
One evening when she was alone, she packed her little bag and, leaving a note to
explain her absence, slipped away. Her grandson found it on coming in. It read:
"Forgive me for going. I have enjoyed it all. Lately I have realized, however,
that the place for me is in Mountain Village. The people there need me and I enjoy
helping them. I think you will understand."
"Yes," said he, after a minute's thought, "she's right."
BARBARA NICHOLS '38.
We wear a reminiscent smile
And feel that it was well worth while.
The days we spent upon the hill
In search of knowledge haunt us still.
And if o'er all the world we roam,
When aged, we'll remember home
And stately etched against the sky,
That grand old school called Norwood High.
IRVING BERKLAND '38.
JOHN BROOKS IN NEW YORK CITY
It seemed to John Brooks that ages had passed since he had entered New York
City in an over-crowded bus. One glance was enough to recognize the fact that he
was no city dweller. His short, sturdy, body, clothed in a plain, brown suit, and
his tanned features proclaimed him to be a tiller of the soil. Despite his parents
pleadings, John Brooks had left his farm so that he might try his luck in the city.
Now he was turning his back upon an office door on which a card had been
tacked— "No Employment Needed." It had been like this for the past two weeks.
He left the building in a bewildered state of mind with only fifty cents in his pocket.
Fifty cents. Not even enough to pay for his return to his farm. His spirits were
low for he now realized that the city was not the place for him. How was he going
to pay his landlady? How was he going to be able to secure food? His thoughts
were interrupted by a gust of cold wind which made him button his overcoat up to
his chin. With the wind came a flurry of tiny snow-flakes which increased in size
and volume as he walked along. At first John Brooks paid no heed to the fluttering
flakes of snow, but all at once he stopped. Here was a job at last — that, of shovelling
For two days John Brooks shoveled snow for the city of New York. On the
evening of the third day a fast-moving, express train carried John Brooks toward
his destination, his farm in the open country.
ANDREW SUNDGREN '38.
"THE ENCHANTED SPOT"
There is a place in the wildwood,
Where I love to go each day,
To sit among the wild flowers,
And watch the birds at play.
Beyond the oak a stream is seen,
Bubbling and laughing along its way,
While the crickets, birds, bees and all,
Start their orchestra for the day.
As I lie there neath the leafy tree,
And smell the perfumed air,
The wind that sings a lullaby
Seems to banish my every care.
Then when homeward I must go
To leave a place so fine,
I thank God for the things He's done
To satisfy mankind.
No matter how rich or poor we be,
The singing birds, the sturdy tree,
The babbling brook, the beautiful bee,
God hath sent them all for us to see.
By KATHLEEN ROBERTSON

A LESSON IN
"Home" is a beloved word ... a word that, to older people, encompasses the nostalgic
memories of childhood: the old gang, end the old familiar scenes . . . the old swimming
place, the never-to-be-forgotten fraternity of high school days. Norwood is your home
. . . some future day its destinies may even be guided by your own hands. Remember,
now, that its existence is largely due to the merchants and business enterprises located
within it . . . and they in turn only exist in-so-far as you patronize them. Just as your
year book is financially helped by the merchants who buy advertising space in
it . . . just so is the merchant helped by your return patronage. Reciprocity is only
another way of saying help those who help you. Buy your graduating needs in Norwood.
We carry graduating clothing of distinction - - - oxford or blue suits for young men
from $19.75 to $29.00 and graduation dresses for young ladies from $3.95 to $12.95.
